In every newspaper, we find a number of advertisements of different slimming centers, promising weight loss in weeks, without any exercise or medicine. While some of them are offering weight loss by the means of liposuction and tummy tucking in just few hours. In the last few years, a large number of these centers have opened all over the country.
These slimming centers are always over crowded by over weight people. The basic trick used by these slimming centers is that they simply give to their clients; the diet charts eliminating all the fatty contents from their food and focusing on salads and fibers. They simply tell their clients to reduce the quantity of their food, which they take in their meal. Not only has this but they also made their clients realize that are not recommending any kind of exercise to them. This result in weight loss temporarily, and when the quantity of food recommended by these centers is changed, weight is rapidly gained again.
The question, which should be answered, is that is there any need to join these centers. The answer to this question is “NO” because we can better judge what we should eat and what we shouldn’t; media and science has made us aware of the fact that high calorie food is injurious to health and simply cutting down the quantity of food does not ensure healthy diet but it generate deficiencies and make the body weak. There is need of cutting down the consumption of soft drinks and increasing the use of salads (without mayonnaise) and fibers. Exercising for the whole day and taking pizzas, creamy pastas or burgers is again useless; however, they can be taken rarely. Quantity of sugar taken should be reduced but not totally eliminated as medical science has proved that eliminating sugar out of the diet results in lowering the level of sugar in the blood, which again welcomes many diseases. Exercise is also must as it prepares the body to fight against many diseases and keeps it fit.
Therefore there is a need of taking a balanced and healthy diet consisting of minerals, fibers, proteins, fats and vitamins; rather than spending extravagantly in these centers.
